Walmart took on Amazon this year with 2017 Black Friday by joining forces with Google, but they still weren’t able to topple the online retail giant, so we’re comparing the two and see how they rack up to win Cyber Monday.

Now, we’re also putting them side-by-side with their Cyber Monday 2017 deals to see who beats you and in what area. We’ve also included the full Walmart sale flyer so you can see everything they have. It’s definitely much smaller on offer compared to Amazon, but they do have a few winners in it.

How Amazon Cyber Monday Beats Walmart Cyber Monday 2017

Quantity and Longevity of Black Friday Deals: I like to stress this – Amazon opened its Countdown to Black Friday Store on November 1st at which point sales keep coming every day until the end of the holiday season sales. It’s a great time to shop. Previously, we confirmed with Amazon that they would begin some of their official Cyber Monday and Cyber Week sales on November 25th and many of these sales are still live on Amazon’s Cyber Monday portal. New deals of the day are being added, well, daily (Amazon.com Cyber Monday store link).

Amazon Devices: While Best Buy and Target sell Amazon devices, Walmart does not. This is therefore perhaps the biggest win for Amazon over its big rival and products like the Echo, Fire, and Kindle ranges are some of the hottest selling devices across the whole holiday sales period. Furthermore, Amazon has set these sales live now and will run them across Cyber Monday. Here are the standout offers on Amazon’s own devices:

  • Amazon Echo Show for $179.99 (save $50) – product link
  • Amazon Echo Dot for $29.99 (save $20) – product link
  • Amazon All-New Echo for $79.99 (save $20) – product link
  • Amazon All-New Echo Plus for $119.99 (save $30) – product link
  • Amazon Tap for $79.99 (save $50) – product link
  • Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition for $69.99 (save $30) – product link
  • Amazon Fire HD 8 for $49.99 (save $30) – product link
  • Amazon Kindle Paperwhite for $89.99 (save $30) – product link
  • Amazon Kindle for $49.99 (save $30) – product link
  • Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote for $24.99 (save $15) – product link
  • Amazon Cloud Cam for $99.99 (save $20) – product link

Good Quality Low-Priced HDTVs: This one is Amazon’s to lose. Every Black Friday and Cyber Monday Amazon promotes impossibly cheap 40-inch plus HDTVs. The problem is the model is never listed (and the brand not always) so they are never the highest quality, but if you simply want the cheapest Cyber Monday HDTV you will find Amazon is rarely topped. Amazon’s Cyber Monday press release lists three cheap HDTVs which will go on sale, and a very reliable source there told us that it’s these three models:

Shipping: Amazon and Walmart will both offer free two-day shipping during Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017, but there are differences. Walmart’s free shipping requires a minimum spend of $35 while Amazon requires a minimum spend of $25. But you can game the system at Amazon. Sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime (sign-up link), and you can do all your holiday shopping with free two day deliveries and no minimum spend. Signing up for a service you might not want isn’t ideal, but you can cancel anytime within the 30 days with no penalty (aka after your holiday shopping is done). You also get access to the popular Prime Video and Prime Music services for free during this time. So for these reasons, I am giving Amazon the win.

How Walmart Cyber Monday Beats Amazon Cyber Monday 2017

Video Game Consoles: In Walmart’s Cyber Monday press release it specifically listed three video game console systems and bundles which are highly sought after. Unlike Walmart, Amazon has not specifically announced any console bundles in its press release for the Sony PS4 or the Microsoft Xbox One S. While I am certain Amazon will offer some video game console related Cyber Monday deals, I am giving this round to Walmart for the advance notice. These are the three Walmart consoles bundles you should focus on:

Google Home Mini: Walmart has the Google Home Mini + $25 Shopping Offer for $29 (save $20) – product link. Walmart had this same deal on Black Friday 2017, and it was the best overall price. It most likely will not be beaten on Cyber Monday. Amazon doesn’t offer the Google Home (due to its competition with the Echo range), so this is a clear win for Walmart on what is already one of the most popular products of the holiday sales season.

Cheap Samsung Galaxy Device: Walmart is offering the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S7 for $299 (save $200) – product link.  This is the brilliant price on what is still a very good smartphone. It is same sale Walmart had for Black Friday 2017, but represents a great option for shoppers shying away from expensive Apple iPhones and newer premium Samsung phones like the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus and Galaxy Note 8.

iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus Deals: For Black Friday, Walmart offered a $300 Walmart gift card on Apple iPhone Qualifying Purchases (iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus 22and iPhone X) for AT&T & Verizon (product link). While Walmart didn’t mention this sale in its official Cyber Monday 2017 press release, I have high hopes the $300 gift card deal is extended to Cyber Monday. Amazon couldn’t beat this deal then and I doubt it will offer anything close for Cyber Monday either.

Cyber Monday Ad Transparency: As you saw with Amazon’s TV deals, the company can often tease customers with great prices on unknown brands and models. Walmart doesn’t do this. The Walmart Cyber Monday Ad (pictured above) lists all manufacturers and models which means it is easier to plan your holiday season shopping. Walmart wins this round.

Amazon’s big advantage over Walmart for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017 is the virtually unlimited stock of its popular Echo, Fire, and Kindle ranges. Unlike Best Buy and Target, Walmart does not stock these. But where Walmart comes out ahead is its willingness to be more transparent about its deals and prices, most notably its Xbox and PS4 bundles and sales of specific HDTV models. With Walmart Cyber Monday you can plan, with Amazon Cyber Monday you have to be more reactive.
